Schools should not open when cases are surging. It is fine if students lose a year, but their lives are important. We need to ensure students are mentally healthy during these times too. more

Schools should reopen with all precautions, and following protocols and safety measures like periodic sanitisation, compulsory mask compliance and enforcement, distancing, segregation and staggering of of class timings, health check up, monitoring and reporting including students home conditions etc. We have accept the new norms. more  
Do you think all these are possible with the children? more  
The schools should be opened at the earliest with precautions. There
should be 2 shifts to observe social distancing. The shutting down of
schools for years will affect the career of students. The double loss must
be avoided - 1) Paying salaries to teachers for doing nothing ii)Loss
of studies to students. Isolated cases of corona should not result in
standstill of education. more
